It's been nearly a month since the sports blackout began due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and sports fans are losing their mind. Thankfully, it appears that hope may be around the corner.
MLB and the Players Association are currently working on a deal to resume play in May. All 30 teams will be playing in Arizona, using the D-Backs home Chase Field, 10 spring training facilities, and possibly other surrounding fields.
The plan is very ambitious and might be too big to pull off, but I'm hoping it happens. The amount of individuals would have to be quarantined alone may be too much for MLB to handle. A total of 780 players (26 players on 30 teams), plus staff and personal would easily top 1000 people. It will also be interesting if the players end up accepting the offer since they would be quarantined away from their families for up to six months. There is also the question of testing and the safety of players.
Hopefully some kind of deal is reached soon. America needs an escape and sports can be it.
